Hi. I am trying to open a .mkv file which has subtitles embedded in it. When I open it with VLC, it shows, 'Building font cache' pop up and crashes eventually. (The video file is not corrupted either. I have been playing these video files in my MacBook pro and they work fine.)

Note that, VLC runs fine while playing video of any format which doesn't have subtitles embedded in it.

Also, is this a common issue in Hackintosh? I am running OSX 10.12.6.

This was a fairly common problem with VLC a long time ago.
It was not confined to Hackintoshes.

If you Google VLC Building font cache you will see some of the solutions that worked previously.
